Additional PSAT Opportunity for Juniors (Class of 2022):

Registration is now open for juniors who wish to take the optional PSAT on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at LPHS. Juniors who took the PSAT on October 14, 2020 are not eligible for this administration. To register for the test, please send an email to Mr. Chris Gibson (cgibson@lphs.net), Associate Principal for Teaching & Learning, stating you wish to participate on January 26, 2021. 

There is a fee of $16 associated with the PSAT and must be paid prior to taking the exam. Once registered, the fee will be added to the student's eFunds account. Payments may be made online or sent directly to LPHS. The PSAT on January 26, 2021, is not a requirement; rather it is an opportunity for juniors to practice ahead of taking the SAT in April 2021.


Attention all students: The University of Illinois Extension is hosting a six-part online series for youth ages 13 and older called Your Thoughts Matter.  This state-wide program will be facilitated virtually, and will help teens learn to define mental health, how to talk about it with family and friends, and how to help themselves and others. Visit: go.illinois.edu/yourthoughtsmatter for more information.
